    1980s GV tornado and magnum .21 running video

    Its runs! I hate the lsn (like the ones in the planes ) but it runs nice. I can't get it full throttle as it looks like it isnt engaging the spur fast enough/at all. Very happy my little "project" if it could even be called that. I also used the futaba magnum junior that came with it

    Weird that this engine doesn't have rings on it?

    Its a magnum .21 that was bought before the 90s it was made by thunder tiger. Just thought i'd be fun to show off some old engine parts

    Dynamite Big Red pull start after-market replacement

    The one that comes with it is terrible to say the least. I like the engine but that pull start design is atrocious. I break this pull start so quickly because a metal piece connects to the OWB hex. The metal piece strips the plastic pull start. This is the engine in case anyone's wondering...

    Savage Nitro brake not engaging when pressing the brake

    It's fun but I don't have brakes. I'm lazy and I don't feel like taking the whole brake, transmission and stuff etc. off my vehicle. Basically the brake linkage doesn't press the pad/compress it. The servo moves it. If you need me to provide video and/or photos I will provide them but at the...

    Does different nitro content really make a big impact on a car's performance?

    Q1: is it worth purchasing 20 or 25% nitro in Europe when u need a license for it? Q2: I'm running a stock 3,3 engine and wanna know if switching from 20% to 16% really is a night and day difference? Q3: Will fuel with a lower nitro content decreases the life of the engine? Q4: I'm into buying...
